Ohhhh... I have old things NEEEEDDDDSS!
I tend to prefer useful and usable things though...
A certain type of John Clappison Hornsea coffee mug. (early 70's kitsch)
If husband knew how much some of those mugs cost he'd choke on the coffee! LOL
Some specific types of Melmac bowls, particularly the thin ones with crazy colors (40's-60's)
And early electric percolators... from chrome to mid-century modern atomic... (30's-50's)
My earliest ones are from the 30's... the one I have used for the past 4 years or so is a two piece steam vacuum percolator that is about 75 years old.
I have few other tchotchke desires... so it works pretty well... If one actually believes that TWO people need 16 coffee mugs. (And I'm not done collecting some of the patterns I covet most... ).
Collectibles that I use every day instead of just look at make me happy. I like to think about all the people who made coffee in those percolators, drank it from the mugs... mixed up something for dinner in my bowls.
Just like I do.
Oh and push-ups.... Impressive!
